Publisher's Summary

After you've sold your soul to the devil, can you renegotiate with a dog?

Brilliant defense attorney Finn Morgenstern knows the worst guys pay best, so defending slimeball Rance Franklin becomes his path to senior partner and a whole lot of benefits. But then a walk home to his pricey townhouse brings him face-to-ears with a batshit-crazy little dog who just won't leave him alone. So Finn takes the dog to the local veterinarian to find out how to get her back to her owners. 

Hello vet! Emerson "Em" Fairweather sure doesn't match his stodgy name. Tall, platinum blond, and gorgeous, Em puts the pet in pet ownership. But Em has ugly secrets, and Batshit the dog is up to her ears in larceny. Suddenly, Finn is the one who needs defending, and he's faced with a choice between what he thought was important and a whole new batshit-crazy life.

Contains mature themes.

The puppy is the star of the book.

I loved this story because the plot was well thought out and I was often surprised by what came next. However, some people will have a hard time with this book because the puppy is the star of the show. There wasn't much time building a relationship between the two main characters. It was just a coincidence they were together. Along with the pup, the plot carried the book. I loved the story. But if your looking for strong main characters with a lot of sex, this is not the book for you. The only thing I didn't like were the many contradictions in the story. They didn't ruin the story, but they were annoying. Who read the book before it was published? Seriously. As far as the narrator, he was fabulous! I always knew who was talking and he could even make lots of animal sounds for the vet's waiting room. I was impressed.

Fairly good story!

I was a little hesitant about the book, because it’s not my usual cozy mystery series. However, I have my own papillon dog, so of course I couldn’t resist. Batshit is brilliant! I was a little put off by the gay intimacy and dog demeaning stuff, but that is just my personal preference and I don’t hold it against the book. I got over it, so you can too! I really hope they release the second book in audio form too!

A bit dated and daft

The writing in this book is a little clumsy and saccharin, some of the word choices were just outdated and cringy, like calling a dick 'a woody goodie'.
I noticed some bad editing, I don't know how it got past the writer, editor and proofreader. .Fin takes the dog to the pet shop to get supplies, then see's a puppy salon. The dog gets shampooed and yet in the proceding chapters the author mentions several times that the dog has dirty fur...as if she forgot about the salon scene.
The crime angle was completed well however
the romance conclusion was ridiculous schmaltzy insta love. These guys had known one another for a couple of weeks and so an engagement is just nuts.
The best thing about this book was hearing Kale Williams woofing and whimpering.
